Tindakan Innovations' premium full-spectrum CBD tinctures provide you with all the benefits of nature to help you live life to the fullest.
When we’re talking about CBD oil, we’re talking about the oil extracted from the buds, leaves and stems of the hemp plant (so, not hemp seed oil). Hemp oil is rich in cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, and has many wellness benefits due to the interaction these compounds (CBD, in particular) have with the body’s endocannabinoid system.
CBD oil tinctures contain this rich, robust hemp oil and usually some sort of carrier oil, such as coconut-derived MCT oil, so that your body can better absorb the CBD.
There are two main types of CBD products: broad spectrum and full spectrum. Broad spectrum CBD is hemp extract that’s primarily CBD but is also supported by other cannabinoids, like CBG and CBN, while THC is kept to undetectable levels. All broad spectrum products from cbdMD are considered THC-free.
CBD oil gives you a great base, from which you build out a variety of wellness products. As mentioned, CBD oil itself is rich in cannabinoids (including CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, and trace amounts of THC), terpenes, flavonoids, and healthy fatty acids. This rich cannabis oil delivers a wide variety of calming wellness benefits through its interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The ECS helps the body to maintain homeostasis, or balance, in a variety of organs and systems, most notably the central and peripheral nervous systems. This helps the body to regulate such functions as mood, memory, motor control, sleep, appetite, pain and stress management, immune function, and much more. This beneficial interaction is why CBD has become such a popular wellness supplement.
Full-spectrum CBD incorporates a range of cannabinoids that work together synergistically, creating what is often referred to as the “entourage effect”. Basically, the therapeutic and relieving benefits of CBD are compounded when you use a full-spectrum product. While taking CBD alone has its own set of benefits and broad-spectrum CBD also contains a range of beneficial cannabinoids, ultimately, if you want to experience the full entourage effect, a full-spectrum CBD oil is the way to go.

CBD oil tinctures are great, because they allow you to dial in the exact amount of CBD in your serving, unlike products such as capsules or gummies, which have a fixed serving size. If this is your first time taking an oil tincture (or the first time you’ve stepped up to a delta-9 THC oil), here’s a quick primer on how to take CBD tinctures.
Read the label of your CBD oil tincture carefully to determine the recommended dosage. That doesn’t mean this is the perfect CBD dosage for you, necessarily. We all have different levels of bioavailability — that is, the amount and rate at which we absorb CBD. If you’re trying CBD (or delta-9 THC) for the first time, start with a low dosage in order to help gauge the effects of your CBD product. A recommended serving size for all of our tinctures is a single 1mL dropper. So, for your first time, we recommend just trying just half a dropper to see how the CBD product affects you.
Your body will absorb the CBD in a couple of ways. First and foremost, it’s important to hold the hemp tincture under your tongue for 60 seconds in order for the CBD to be absorbed through the capillaries of your mouth. This will get the CBD into your bloodstream much quicker than if you had simply swallowed it, which would mean waiting for the CBD to be absorbed through your digestive tract. Of course, once you swallow the CBD oil, it will travel through your digestive system, in addition, giving you extended benefits.
Make sure not to drink anything for about 10 minutes after you take your CBD oil. This way, the capillaries of your mouth will continue to soak in any residual CBD.
Don’t expect to feel the CBD effects immediately. Sublingual CBD products can take 15–30 minutes to kick in, depending on bioavailability factors. It’s also important to understand what your CBD tincture was designed to do. For instance, if you take our CBD + CBG Oil Wellness Tincture, don’t expect to relax or unwind. A CBD wellness elixir is designed for focus and daily wellness benefits, not relaxation. If you know what your tincture is supposed to do, and understand bioavailability rates for CBD oils, you can better manage your expectations.
Now, it’s just a matter of whether or not your CBD dosage was the correct serving size for you.
If just a half dropper of CBD tincture was enough for you to feel the effects, then you’ve found your own personal “Goldilocks” serving size: the one that’s just right for you! Don’t worry that it’s only a half dropper. In fact, you should celebrate the fact that you can stretch out your CBD supply much farther than other folks can.
A half dropper of CBD Sleep Tincture wasn’t quite enough to put you down for the night? Don’t worry — and don’t reach for the bottle to grab an extra drop! If you get impatient and take a second dose of CBD oil, you won’t know whether you’re feeling the effects of the second drop or the first drop kicking in a little later than expected. And you may accidentally build up an unnecessary tolerance to CBD, as well.
When you try a new CBD product (or delta-9 THC), you should be prepared to under-dose on the first day. That’s okay. Tomorrow, after the first CBD drop has worked its way out of your system, you can try again with a higher dose (three-fourths of a dropper or a full CBD dropper). Then, you’ll know for certain what did and didn’t work.
You can also bypass the whole sublingual method, altogether, and simply swallow your CBD oil. Many people, in fact, add CBD oil tincture to their coffee or smoothie. This works perfectly fine, as well. Just know that when you take your tincture as an edible, absorbing it through your digestive system rather than beneath the tongue, it will take longer to feel the effects (30 minutes to two hours, on average).
